Limited Capacity seats available

This session will explore the science of reading as it relates to adolescents. First, participants will consider why we are committed to this work and the challenge of supporting all students as they strive to reach personal, academic, and career goals. Second, we will explore how intensive instruction supports attainment of critical knowledge and skills and how intensive instruction can be delivered in supplemental and core classes. Third, a framework that supports instruction for Higher Order Thinking Skills and foundational literacy skills will be shared. The framework supports intensive instruction for literacy skills and the opportunity to generalize reading skills to core class material. Next, examples will be shared of what evidence-based practices support the development of adolescent reading skills and core class instruction in Higher Order Thinking Skills. Finally, a research based professional development and instructional coaching model that supports teachers and is driven by what teachers see as critical to getting evidence-based practices implemented with effectiveness will be described.
